Support for Marvel's Avengers will officially end on the 30th September 2023, developer Crystal Dynamics has confirmed. The live service action game will be just three years old by then, having first launched for PS4 in September 2020. You'll be able to keep playing the game after the above date, both in solo and multiplayer, but there'll be no further updates or additional content beyond that point. What's more, it won't be available to buy on digital storefronts.
Starting 31st March 2023, all "Market, Challenge Card, and Shipment cosmetic content" will be made completely free to all players, which is at least a nice gesture. This'll occur alongside the launch of the title's final update, which promises gameplay balance adjustments.
It goes without saying that it's been a rocky old road for Marvel's Avengers. A frankly botched marketing campaign lead to a decidedly muted launch, and the title has struggled to break free from those first impressions ever since, even though the experience as a whole been significantly expanded (and improved) through updates and DLC. Still, Avengers has its fans, and it's always a shame to see a project like this eventually tap out and call it quits.
"We can't thank you enough for your support and for being a part of our super team," reads the developer's farewell blog post.
